Here are the finalists for the 2008 Broad Prize -- an annual award to the urban district that has made the most progress in raising achievement and reducing the gap:
- Aldine Independent School District
- Broward County Public Schools
- Brownsville Independent School District
- Long Beach Unified School District
- Miami-Dade County Public Schools
The award is being announced tomorrow. Chicago's not a finalist. Never has been, far as I recall. Meanwhile, Boston and New York have already won.
